4 years and much more!

January 20th Nic and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary. It's crazy that another year has came and gone of our life together already. Nic got me some beautiful flowers and a very sweet card. It's nice to see his sweet side every once in a while. I am so grateful for Nic and the great husband and father he is! I couldn't imagine life without him and I hope I never have to experience it. He is my best friend and the only person that can make me so mad one minute and have me laughing so hard I'm crying the next... We were able to go to the temple and out to lunch. Nic's mom watched the kiddos. It was nice to go and remember covenants we made 3 years ago to heavenly father and eachother. I look forward to many many years with Nicholaus Kurt Despain and I am so glad he's patient enough to put up with this crazy woman! LOL!

Kamden is 6 months old! I can't believe it. He just cut his second tooth. It looks like he is going to teeth like Taya, she cut two teeth at a time. He is SOOO close to crawling he used to just go backwards, then he was able to go side to side and now he is slowly figuring out how to go forward.... I'm afraid I may have my hands more full than I want!! Any way Kamden's growth has slowed he is 17lbs 13.5 oz and 26.25inches putting him in the 50% for everything. He's eating us out of house and home though he nurses 4 times a day, has a bowl of cereal and a jar of fruit baby food in the morning, 2 jars of vegetables in the afternoon, and cereal and a jar of fruit and sometimes a jar of vegetables in the evening. He's turing into quite the happy lil man! He makes me laugh so hard and adores his sister. She likes to push him in the cart at the store and everytime they both end up laughing so hard at each other! It makes me smile and makes our shopping trip alot more enjoyable for everyone! But I still think he is the sweetest when he is sleeping even if it is in his bouncer! Poor baby!

Mataya is growing up quicker then I would like to admit. She is so smart. She loves to help cook and do the dishes and is a big help with brother! She can sing the whole first verse of "I'm a Child of God" and loves to tease! She is obsessed with Dora and can now count to 10 in spanish!(she only gets to watch it twice a week too!)She is a Sunbeam now and loves Primary! I think it helps that half the time I am there with her. She loves our neighbor Madden Hall and Marcus Pixley is one of her best buds! She was super excited to get to have her cousin Teagan over to play too and to go to Grandma and Grandpa Biglers to play in the snow and with ERIC. She thinks that beast turning into a human is "hmmm that's strange!"

Nic ran his first Marathan. He did the PF changs Rock N' Roll Marathon On January 17th. He ran 26.2 miles in 6 hours and 26 min. He was tired and very sore afterwards. Infact he tore a tendon in the top of his foot. He says that he will never do another marathan unless he trains first. I think that's a great idea! We are so proud that he did it though!

As I mentioned we did go to Heber to go play in the snow. A funny story, on our way up to Heber there was a Semi truck stuck in the middle of the road. There were quite a few irratated people so nic drove past a couple trucks and got out and talked with the driver. Nic said that he could try and pull him up the hill but he wasn't sure if he could do it. So they hooked everything up and after a couple minutes Nic was pulling the truck up the hill. As you can imagine people were laughing at the site of our Ford pulling the Semi along with ease, and Nic I think grew 2 inches... He just kept laughing and saying, "Now that is FORD TOUGH!" LOL.

We did have fun in the snow! We went sledding burried Nic and Taya and him made a chair out of snow! It was a great time and we enjoyed getting to see my mom and dad and Brian's family. We also drove to snowflake and saw Grandma Holladay and got to go to dinner with Tobi and the kids. We love you all and it was great to see you!

January Already!

I guess it is time that I finally sat down and updated our blog. But where to begin??

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We were able to go up to Heber to spend the day with my family. We came back so I could do the day after Thanksgiving shopping and so we could go the the ASU game on Saturday and have dinner with Nic's family. Nic's Aunt Amy also took some family pictures for us. She does a great job if you are looking for someone to take some GREAT pictures check out her blog Taya was a little poop in the beginning cause she had fallen asleep on the way there but I think they turned out great!

December came and went so fast my head is still spinning. My little sister had a beautiful girl on the 5th. They named her Katelyn Azure Bryce. She's a little thing but she's sweet and we lover her. Kati and Boston are excited she's here and are still adjusting to the life of no sleep and it being all about Katelyn!

My friend Kelci had a beautiful tiny little girl on the 14th. I have yet to meet Ashlyn Parra hopefuly soon! And then Nic's cousin Lawryn had her baby girl on the 18th. They named her Brooklynn Nicole Willis. She is ADORABLE. She made me baby hungry lol.... only for a few seconds that is... hahaha
We also had the Despain Christmas Party the 18th. It was a good time we ate some great food, enjoyed a good white elephant, and was able to help out a family this year. It was different without Grandma and Grandpa. We miss them dearly but they sent gifts for all of us that they made. Grandma made hats for all the kids and grandpa made necklaces for the girls and boots for the boys (hand carved wooden ones). Grandpa also made plaques for all the married couples with a picture of the Nauvoo Temple. They were great gifts and we really enjoy their hard work.

We were visited by Santa. Man it was good to have him in our home!!

We were definetly spoiled at Christmas. I got all kinds of sewing stuff (my new hobbie, Im addicted) and the willow tree carving quitely, quilting racks and lots of other things. Nic got a guitar and dutch ovens and other stuff as well. Taya got barbies, barbie stuff, clothes, and a scooter!! Kamden got a train, clothes, and a ball toy. We were SPOILED!

January- So far this month we have gone to the park ALOT. It has just been so nice. Allionna Connolly came and visited last Tueday. Taya was so excited she was there and in fact when she left Taya told me that she had so much fun with her and wanted her to stay forever and ever.

We have got to spend sometime with our friends Mike and Cara Hill and their little guy TY. Kamden and Ty are about 7 weeks apart I think. Here's a picture of the two of them.

Nic's birthday was January 8th. We went snowboarding at Snow Bowl and had a really good time together. Nic's mom watched the kids for us. It was nice to get away with just the two of us. We hung out at his parents house and played games after we got home from boarding. Nic is now 25! Crazy and our 4 year anniversary is just aroud the corner. I can't believe it. I sure do love him. He's became my best friend and some one that on a daily basis drives me crazy, makes me laugh, makes me trully happy, and loves me!. I am so thankful for him and the husband and father he is. We are so lucky to have him.

Last but not least, Our kids are growing fast. Kamden is scooting backwards and sleeping 12-13 hours a night WHOO HOO!! Taya is learing to write her ABC's and loves to help cook, clean, and help with brother. We love them dearly and are so lucky to have sweet little kids that light up our days.
